Promises of Time

Promises of Time
2.5 (50%) 4 votes

Since that never forgotten day
time has promised to give a cure
for the addiction you once gave me
but the deal seems to remain obscure
since that day you had to walk away
I’m not done with even a single memory

It was nobody’s fault after all
pure destiny pushed us to fall
everything we have was suddenly gone
like stars at the early hours of dawn

Since the day you were far too gone
time has promised me a new life after you
someone someday will simply fill your place
day after day I’ve been waiting for that one
but now I know you’re not the one I can replace
where I’ve always kept you can’t ever hold two
with the winds I’m going to run looking for the sun

I find it hard to sleep at night
we shouldn’t have given up the fight
I really do miss you by my side
you shouldn’t have taken that flight

I know for everything we do there’s a reason
but I’m not convinced with destiny nor fate
I am so much done with our committed treason
It’s not you it’s life after you that I hate

Time shall open up for the words today I’ll promise
we have gone into the deepest wild of this infernal life
we have been living few last years in sorrow and disgrace
skies have repeatedly cried for our sorrow and strife
the kingdom we once built awaits there for you princess
I’ll race the clouds to tear down the tears on your face

It’s never too late as long we have time
time that we’ve paid for doing that crime
crime we have to put behind and deeply regret
regret for the days we missed but never forget

With blind closed eyes under the raining skies
through roses of your smell above the underneath hell
by the sound of your voice disagreeing any other choice
I’ll come to find you again having nothing to lose
but your love to regain I’ll stand up for destiny
having nothing to lose but to retain back my sanity

Time is what I will promise to have you eternally
years passing again and again on our anniversary
light up the candles I’m coming for you
time has passed but I could never let go…
